Newspoll suggests LNP to win today’s QLD election

The latest Newspoll shows the Liberal National Party is set to retain government in Queensland following today’s election, but with only a slight majority.

The poll released today by News Corp suggests there will be an 11-point swing toward Labor, but shows the LNP will retain government, with the LNP leading Labor 52% to 48% on a two party preferred basis.

The LNP also has a primary vote of 41%, ahead of Labor on 37%.

On the question of preferred premier Campbell Newman leads his rival Annastasia Palaszczuk 43%t to 42%.

Meantime a ReachTel poll, commissioned by Network Seven, also has the LNP ahead of Labor on a two-party preferred result at 52% to 48%.

It doesn’t provide good news for Mr Newman though, highlighting the growing discontent with him as Premier. 35.7% of respondents have labeled his performance as very poor and 16.7% as poor.

A combined 33 per cent rated his efforts very good or good.

Mr Newman is tipped to lose his seat of Ashgrove, to Labor’s Kate Jones.
